I can't win!
I've tried about 20 times trying to kill the coruscant mercenary with that force pike, i only have 12 shots with the double laser gun, and quite a few on the weak gun (gun for 1 and 2). I only got 20% health too!!

oh, i also ripped off that one guy, you know the guy who wants to give you tickets for a high price? Well this is how:

Talk to him
Get money for binoculars
Tell him that he said 50 each (or less)
Walk away
Go back to him and say "i'm sure it was an honest mistake" and you'll rip him off!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAAAH!!!!!! It's so funny, you could also be mean and switch to quigon or obiwan and force-push him off the edge (not sure if it'd work i'm going to go try it now)

Well with 12 R-65 shots left you are seriously SCREWED. You need to restart the level and conserve ammo. Or you could type in the code happy which causes the weak gun to become a flamethrower, firing tank rounds (and maybe slowing your framerate when it fires as it fires so fast ).
Force push always works, regardless if you are supposed to use it on the level or not.
You could character switch to a Jedi and annihilate the mercenary that way.
I've ripped off the guy countless times, Jared figured it out first (he would wouldn't he )
BTW, the happy code is not considered a cheat by the game, so it still gives you a ratng, luckily.
DON'T repeat DON'T get near the exploding generators. I don't care what walkthrus say, the explosions rarely harm the mercenary. And they'll kill you very quickly.
You could also type in slowmo to make everything slow down (I've never tried it while fighting, but it should make up for time if your reflexes aren't helping)
Hope this helps.

At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi.
At last we will have revenge.

alright!!!! happy allows a rating?? i guess i'll use it! YAY!!!!

I'm sure a lot of people know this, but we put in a "cheat" to bypass the whole Tour Ticket trading scenario, so that during testing, the testers who needed to test for bugs beyond that point could quickly get there. As it turned out, we never removed it.

You know that droid that you give the tickets to?

Shoot him.

Door opens.

That's it?! Zanzibar, I love you.

it's called the Han Solo approach

And if I close my mind in fear,
Please pry it open.

Garindan 04-20-2001 05:28 PM

LOL ahahahahahahahahaaaaa!!!!!! I don't need to waste money on that guy! i don't even need to kill him! GREAT!!!!

Redwing 04-21-2001 08:22 AM

WHAT? That's ALL? *hits self* That's the one thing I never thought of! (without a lightsaber, u tend not to waste ammo on something u think won't work anyway )

So far as I know, ONLY the codes that affect health or give you extra ammo affect you're rating. Tho I could be wrong...

Unless Zanzibar would be so kind as to tell us...?

Garindan 04-21-2001 12:51 PM

well i beat him. I conserved ammo for the gun, didn't use any codes too. I found some health by moving stuff in the beginning. I only got hit once but i creamed the mercenary. Now I'm at assault on threed

Redwing 04-22-2001 04:15 PM

Oh, you weren't getting the secret stuff? That explains it...
